Skitterbug: the best thing since sliced bread!
Pulling out a pre-sliced piece of bread from the plastic bag and popping it in the toaster is a breeze. Finding a knife and a cutting board to cut a piece from a loaf not to mention cleaning up all the crumbs left behind is much less convenient and more time-consuming. Likewise, sending a link of your glossy studio website to a potential customer is easy. Designing the elegant website with a drop down menu, a photo gallery and an option to pay online can be hard!
I live by this mantra: any activity associated with technology that stumps me for more than 15 minutes--30 minutes at the max--requires outside help. Analogy: if I don't have a serrated knife to slice properly or a cutting board to protect the kitchen counter, then it's time to find someone who does. Enter Skitterbug!

Here's my recent experience with Skitterbug:
Since I'm involved in a number of endeavors, I determined I needed to "house" all of them under one site called LeilaViss.com. Although I consider myself quite savvy, I do get stumped. I emailed Bryn with my question and within 30 minutes, she not only fixed the issue on my site but also sent me a video on how she solved the problem so that I could do it myself next time. Really? Really!
